« We wanted to create a narrative system that was non-linear but also immersive. To achieve this, we took our inspiration from an everyday object, the smartphone. Most people use a smartphone in their everyday life, and would instinctively know what to do with it and what to search for if they were to find one in the street. By using this medium, we are able to create a close bond between the player and the main character. » says Elizabeth Maler, founder and writer at Accidental Queens.
A Normal Lost Phone will release on PC, Android and iOS for $2.99
on January 26, 2017.
